A few things are looking up, and if all else fails, I know that I can always enjoy a good day with my fiancee. The day began with going to an old family friend, who is a hairdresser and helped me with some ideas for my wedding hair.
She gave me some ideas involving knots and kind of tying the hair, and then fascinating it with pins. It's very soft and loose, which is good because my hair will not hold anything else. It's really fine, so it doesn't even hold a tease (A TEASE. When you backcomb the life out of it. It won't hold for more than AN HOUR). The ideas she gave are very pretty and loose and even work my rebel cowlick into the hair style. This works for me, and I got some great hair product from LUSH (a natural-based skin and beauty chain that makes from as many natural ingredients as possible, aims to be very grassroots, and donates a lot to different charities). One of them, which is specifically for dry or curly hair (mine is both!), smells like the woods. Perfect for my life.
Later, we went to buy some art supplies/materials that I needed to create more things for my Etsy shop and get ready for Expos and sales and such. Then we moved on to get some 'back-to-school' things.
Proud owner of a tie-dye kit (I have ideas), an Alice in Wonderland lunchbox (a metal one!), an album by DAATH, and fox socks. We also picked up some cool notebooks for our classes, some staple clothing pieces, and some delicious tea for our wedding.
It would appear that despite stress and madness and craziness... We can still find joys in preparing for school and our lives together.
Oh, and Hallowe'en stuff is out at Michael's. I can't express how excited I am. So much Hallowe'en stuff that I want in my home...
